What's the point of disallowing deep linking with about:config, but not with the config.xhtml page.

Mozilla wrote:We explicitly decided to disallow deep linking into internal settings to reduce attack surface, present and potential.

Add ability to filter by about:config pref directly (WONTFIX)
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1501450

Fails:

about:config?filter=security.tls.version
about:config?filter=/warnOnClose|loadInBackground/

Succeeds:

chrome://global/content/config.xhtml?filter=security.tls.version
chrome://global/content/config.xhtml?filter=/warnOnClose|loadInBackground/
